Fruit of Groundnut is
Legume is a dehiscent dry fruit produced from a monocarpellary superior ovary. Caryopsis is dry and one seeded fruit which developed from a superior monocarpellary ovary. In this the pericarp is closed and fused with seed coat. It is a characteristics of family Poaceae.
Micropyle of seed is involved in the passage of
Micropyle of seed is involved in the passage of water. Micropyle plays an very important role in absorbing water during the time of germination.
Normally endosperm formation is accompanied by degeneration of nucellus. Persistent nucellus is termed as perisperm.
The dust-like seeds of orchids have no endosperm. Orchid seedlings are mycoheterotrophic in their early development. In some other species, such as coffee, the endosperm also does not develop. Instead the nucellus produces a nutritive tissue termed perisperm.
Mango juice is got from
[1989, 2002, 04]
Mesocarp is the edible part of Mangifera indica (Mango).
Floral formula of Tomato/Tobacco is
Tomato and Tobacco both belong to the family Solanaceae. Solanaceae has some identifying characteristicsbicarpellary syncarpous superior ovary, axile plancentation, fruit is berry or capsule.
New Banana plants develop from
Each pseudostem produces a single bunch of bananas, before dying and being replaced by a new pseudostem. The base of the plant is a rhizome (known as a corm). Corms are perennial, with a productive lifespan of 15 years or more . Cultivated bananas are parthenocarpic, which makes them sterile and unable to produce viable seeds. Lacking seeds, another form of propagation is required. This involves removing and transplanting part of the underground stem (called a corm). Usually this is done by carefully removing a sucker with some roots intact.
In Groundnut the food/oil reserve is present in
Groundnut is economically important plant as edible oil is obtained from the cotyledons. Peanuts are a rich source of protein (roughly 30 grams per cup after roasting) and Monounsaturated fat. Recent research on peanuts and nuts in general has found anti-oxidants and other chemicals that may provide health benefits. Peanuts are a significant source of resveratrol, a chemical studied for potential anti-aging effects.
Tegmen develops from
In seeds developing from bitegmic ovules the seed coat has two layers outer testa and inner tegmen. Testa develops from outer integument whereas tegmen develops from inner integument.
Vivipary is characteristic of
Special type of seed germination is characteristic of halophytes growing in saline conditions is vivipary. The seed germination occurs inside the fruit while it is attached to the parent plant.
A family delimited by head type of inflorescence is
Asteraceae possesses head or capitulum inflorescence which is racemose and is surrounded by an involucre of bracts.
Velamen is found in
Aerial roots of orchids hang freely in the air and absorb moisture with the help of special sponge like tissue called velamen.
Vegetative reproduction of Agave occurs through
Agave species are popular ornamental plants. Each rosette is monocarpic and grows slowly to flower only once. During flowering a tall stem or “mast” grows from the center of the leaf rosette and bears a large number of shortly tubular flowers. After development of fruit the original plant dies, but suckers are frequently produced from the base of the stem which become new plants. It is a common misconception that Agaves are a cactus.
Syngenesious condition is found in
Syngenesious condition is found in asteraceae. It is the condition when stamens are united by their anthers (filaments free). Epipetalous condition is also seen here.
Fruit of Mangifera indica is
Drupe is a fleshy one seeded, indehiscent fruit eg. Mangifera indica.
is floral formula of
Botanical name of Cauliflower is
Cauliflower has the scientific name Brassica oleracea belonging to the variety botrytis.
Vivipary germination is the characteristic mode of seed germination in Rhizophora (Mangrove).
Germination of seed within fruit is
Epipetalous stamens with free filaments and fused anthers occur in
Asteraceae possess five stamens with free filaments but anthers united forming a tube around the style (syngenesious).
Pulses are obtained from
Pulses which are economically important belong to the family Fabaceae.
A perennial plant differs from biennial in
Perennials survive for more than two years and produce flowers and fruits during specific seasons.
Plant having column of vascular tissues bearing fruits and having a tap root system is
Dicotyledoneae is the group of angiosperm with two cotyledons, flower bi or pentamerous, leaves net-viened, stern with Open collateral vascular bundle arranged in a ring and roots form tap root system.
Hypanthodium is a special kind of inflorescence where the receptacle is usually fleshy and flash-shaped. e.g. Ficus.
Buttress roots are found in
Buttress roots are asymmetrically thickened prop roots found at the base of certain trees. They render additional mechanical support to the trees. e.g. Salmalia, Terminalia etc.
Tetradynamous stamens are found in family
Tetradynamous stamens consist of four long-sized stamens and two shortsized stamens. Such kind of stamens are found in family Cruciferae e.g. Sarsoo. Tetradynamous condition is characteristic of this family.
